RIGHT THERE, A SHORT FILM ABOUT TOLERANCE (16:44)


Teenagers who were little kids on 9/11 return to their old elementary school, just three blocks north of the World Trade Center. Ten years later, what do they remember? What are they thinking? Here's a glimpse of urban teens – thoughtful, hopeful and wise.
